The Indians said Brantley went to Vail, Colorado, to have his ankle examined by a specialist. ... RHP Danny Salazar, who came out of the bullpen in his last two appearances after returning from a sore elbow, is scheduled to start Thursday.
"They've been an incredible team to watch," Miller said Thursday before the Indians opened a four-game series against the Kansas City Royals. "It's been a lot of fun. It's not a lot of fun to miss out on ever, but they've been exciting to watch and have found a lot of different ways and pretty good baseball across the board. It's a tribute the staff and what kind of team we have and the types of players we have and hopefully it's a nice building block to where we want to go."
